Non-Newtonian body fluids and the flapping of medical microbots.

Tiny Robots Mimic Scallops to Swim Through Bodily Fluids (VIDEO)

"Microrobots that can independently swim within the body may one day help diagnose conditions and to treat diseases by traveling to areas that conventional technology simply can’t reach. There’s already considerable research toward this goal, including how to encapsulate drugs, trigger different actions by the microrobots, and identifying materials that are safe and practical at very small scales."
